Steve's request for website content
« on: July 21, 2006, 11:28:08 am »
Is anyone planning on contributing to the site as Steve asked in the last podcast?

I've sent Steve a review and a feature, will have to wait and see what he makes of it.

I sent him a few small paragraphs with some of my background, but no sample of my work.

I really want to contribute.

I have it all planned out what I will send him when he gets back to me. :)

I would suggest not waiting to hear back from him. I would tell him your interested and submit a sample of your writing like he suggested as soon as possible. You might not hear anything back from him right away as he is really super busy right now. I know a few other people have been interested so I think the response to his request is going to be high.

Cool, good luck!

I've dabbled with my own sites but without a decent audience it's kinda hard to stay motivated to write content...

I would like to contribute a newspost to gamingsteve.com every once in a while but doing it on a regular basis wouldn't work for me so I guess I'm not... :-\

Actually something I suggest would be every once in a while in a podcast Steve ask for a sort of "Conflicting Opinions" type thing. In this people would basically write in on a topic he gives in the podcast. Two well written yet opposing viewpoints would be then put in a news post at a later date.

I think it would be an interesting feature.

At the same time I don't want to drive Steve nuts with work, as sifting through a bunch of email would be kind of hard. Then again he probably already has some system for podcast questions to keep him from going nuts...

anyway to recap:
1.Want To Write articles for gamingsteve.com, just not on a regular basis
2.Conflicting opinions newspost would be fun but don't want to barrage Steve with work.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I think I'm gonna submit some stuff.  Do you think he would accept reviews I wrote on epinions.com?

I'm not sure, original and exclusive content may well be preferred.

I don't think it will matter. I think he just wants to read a sample of how you write a review. I would suggest that you submit it exactly like he asked and not send a link to another location.

I sent him 2 samples of articles that I have written earlier for my site and for Newsvine.  I hope to hear from him on if I was picked or not but I would think that he would only contact the people who were picked because of the massive amount of emails he is probably getting.

I just remembered that I should have let him know that I won a contest from another podcast for having the most original idea for a game.

Ok I submitted about 3 epinions reviews that I changed a little bit (2 games and 1 hardware) and 1 review that I didn't write for epinions.  Good luck to everyone ;D
